OFFICIAL Card - Netherlands

I think some cards just find their person. This is a great example. Amber and Marleen are a mother and daughter Postcrossing team who sent this card to me in September. Marleen writes "What a coincidence I bought this card yesterday at a second hand shop". That is an understatement! What are the odds of finding a card in pristine condition (even the cut outs are perfect - no bends!) that is 15 years old and the next day selecting a name and that person has Olympics on their wish-list. I would but a lottery ticket! The card shows Tonny de Jong, an Olympic hopeful for The Netherlands in the 1998 Nagano Games. Once again, great stamps too!

Have you ever had some hard to believe coincidences like this?

  1. I once received two different Marilyn Monroe postcards on the same day...not quite in the same league as yours, but still quite coincidental!

    Yours was a great card to receive! Congrats on it.

    1. I think that is a pretty good coincidence!
